Not sure how secure changing the serial number will be. Where would you get a serial number that should be from a range of the MTNL accepted brands?
I don't think it's a range, depending on the configuration, the specific ONT serial would need to be whitelisted or allowed to register. So you might need to get an ONT from MTNL or the operator, and later if you want you could clone the serial and other parameters of your official ONT to the Ubiquiti.

@Royalpopat I would be interested to know your experience on the Unifi device if you get it.
You are probably aware that the serial number to be used should be the one from your existing ONU. This serial number is what the ISP has registered in their database for you.

I am surprised. When 90% people here have recommended against using own ONU on MTNL FTTH, OP is showing strong resilience to this opinion. It would be a huge mistake to do R&D and make Ubiquiti GPON device to work in current pandemic scenario especially when MTNL is behaving like a dead zombie with hair thin staff.
PS: I have tried a TP-Link GPON with simple serial number change with MTNL FTTH technical guy at my home co-ordinating with NOC guy to make it work on their networks. It just didn’t work no matter how hard they tried. Finally I gave the device to them so that they could R&D it themselves. This happened last year Feb 2019 and till date they haven’t been able to get it to work.
OP please save the headache.

True that. No gain without pain.

@sanke3 possible to share the MTNL NOC contact you had. I would love to have a conversation with them in regards to my setup and also a general setup in my building. Trying to find a middle ground between technology and the retro society guys.

I don't have his number as it was done by the installation guy. The NOC guy left MTNL 2 months back as he took VRS. So you're on your own.

nothing to do with racism or the on-going pandemic. I generally try to avoid China companies as much as possible. I just do not like the way they operate and their privacy policies. The above statement is in all good faith.
